Smokey Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta


Smokey sun-dried tomato pasta has the creamy texture and the rich flavors of mac n’ cheese without the dairy. This no-bake recipe comes together quickly because the different elements of the dish are cooked and prepped at the same time.

First, you get the water boiling for the noodles while you are prepping the tofu bacon bits. Once you throw the tofu bacon in the oven you chop and cook the onion and thyme in a skillet. By this point, the water is boiling and you throw the pasta on to cook while blending the sauce ingredients together. Finally, pour the sauce right from the blender into the drained pasta and mix the tofu bacon bits into the onion thyme topping.
